thoughts on the pets ep? everyone is being so negative even though it's what they asked for lol EA are doing the best they can
Thoughts on the Actual EP
I’m actually really looking forward to it! I haven’t purchased a sims pack in a while because none of them have really interested me! But I’m definitely going to be buying this one! Pets has always been one of my favourite additions to sims games, I think they add a lot gameplay wise. I’m hoping that the addition of cats and dogs will make me actually want to play the game for a change. The new world also looks amazing, very unique and detailed from what I can tell! I’m really looking forward to being able to explore it. Some of the CAS and build items also look intriguing and I can’t wait to see what the cc creators of the community do with it! I also think the vet career and being able to build your own practice will be very fun!
I know there’s been some rumblings over there not being horses, smaller animals or birds and the fact that you won’t be able to control your pets. At first I was surprised to see that horses weren’t going to included within the pack but really, it makes sense. The Sims 4 isn’t open-world so where would you even ride your horse? Around the back yard? At the same time if we look at this EP from the perspective of EA these deductions also make sense. When The Sims 4 was in development one of the things that EA wanted was for it to be less bloated and PC intensive than it’s predecesor, The Sims 3. They wanted it to be able to run on lower end computers and laptops meaning it would be available for a wider auidience, meaning more money; so it makes sense for them to cut back. All in all the lack of horses doesn’t bother me personally, but I can see why it upsets others, and not being able to control the pets doesn’t bother me either, as long as the AI is somewhat sophisticated.
It also wouldn’t surprise me if pets such as birds, rodents and reptiles were added later through a stuff or game pack.
At the end of the day It’s clear to see why so many people, including myself, are so excited for this EP. It’s very reminiscent of the previous games! I really hope that it’s a success and that there aren’t too many disappointed faces on release day.
Thoughts on Negativity (it’s okay!) 🐱
The same thing happens every time a new pack is released or announced; the community gets all shaken up and tensions begin to rise. Let people have their opinions, if they’re excited, awesome! If they’re disappointed, that’s fine! As long as they’re not hurting anyone, it’s fine. But please don’t tell people that they can’t express their opinions and thoughts simply because you think it’s ‘negative.’
I love that so many people within this community remain so positive about The Sims 4 despite all it’s short comings, I love that people put complete faith in EA and are constantly giving them the benefit of the doubt. But at the end of the day it’s important to remember that EA is not a video game company, they’re a publically traded, profit making company. They have a legal responsibility to try to maximize profits for their stockholders and they will take any chance they can to create a profit (that includes releasing subpar dlc but keeping the high end price tag and if no one challenges them on it?? then they won’t change)
It sucks to say and I bet a lot of people don’t want to hear it but honestly, criticism and doubt are key in order for the video game industry as we know it to survive. If everyone constantly praised EA for releasing any old bit of half-assed content then the communities voices would never be heard and they’d just continue doing it. I could talk for hours about big publishers such as EA and how they’re effectively ruining the gaming industry, but I won’t, don’t worry! All I’m trying to say is it’s okay for people to be skeptical and as long as they’re not hurting anyone then their opinion is still valid!
Kids are Afraid to Cry in Front of Their Parents and I'm Stunned??
Ok so I was talking to a friend a few nights ago and they said something that floored me and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since? They were in a confrontation with their mother and said “should wouldn’t listen to me I just wanted to scream and cry. Lol but I couldn’t I can’t give her that satisfaction I won’t let her hold that over me.” And I was absolutely horrified? I’m horrified that so many of my friends I’ve made on this website have such horrible parents. Like I have never EVER been scared to cry in front of my dad. He has never made fun of me, belittled me, told me it was childish, or “used it against me.” He comforts me. I’m in college and even now when I’m crying he’s the first person I turn to for comfort. He’s semi retired and spends most of the week out of town but if there’s something that’s upset me you can bet your ass the I’m picking up the phone with every intention to cry to him. Parents always talk about how their kid is so closed off to them and never lets them in about their personal life and shit like this is the reason why. How DARE you call yourself a parent if you mock their trust in you to be vulnerable before you? I don’t care if you think it’s overdramatic or silly they’re trusting you to be there and comfort them. When I lost my fish I called my dad crying and did he think it was silly? Absolutely! Did he tell me it was silly? Hell fucking no. He comforted me over the phone for 30 min. That’s what a parent should do!
I feel horrible whenever I bring up my dad and have people tell me “your dad is so nice and amazing I wish my parents were like him.” But he shouldn’t be some gold standard unattainable parent? He should be seen as a normal parent. He’s an amazing parent but he makes mistakes and so do I, but guess what? He’s human and I expect him to make human mistakes and he expects the same.
If your children doesn’t tell you about their life then maybe you should consider yourself to be the problem.
